UvhdCleanupBin keeps growing RRS feed

  • Question

  • My question is can this folder be cleaned out? Is there any harm in deleting old profile data from this?

    The folder seems to swell due to temp RDS profiles being created and profiles not being deleted on logoff properly. We've not been able to determine the cause of the temp profiles and we can't just keep throwing disk space at the issue. We're running Windows 2012 R2 and using profile disks. Anyone else come across this issue?

  • Hi,

    Have you patched your RDS infrastructure with the latest updates ? there are a number of fixes released in updates for UPD's. Also failing that, I would check you network connection to the file share and connections to the file share as you may need to remove sessions for the users with profiles not released on logoff. 

    Best regards,

  • Yes, everything is patched up through July. It looks like the August update addresses the issue so hopefully this works but it still doesn't answer my question if this folder can be manually maintained or not. 


    • Addressed issue where files and folders accumulate in the UvhdCleanupBin folder in Remote Desktop session hosts. These files are not deleted when a user logs off if the path limit is exceeded. In extreme cases, this issue can cause logon failures.

  • Hi,

    There is no official document regarding whether the UvhdCleanupBin folder can be managed manually.

    However, here is a thread below that other forum community members deleted contents within it and worked fine afterwards.

    What is UvhdCleanupBin


    Best Regards,
